Useful Mushroom Websites
The internet offers incredible resources and equally incredible amounts of misinformation. Here are a few of the best that there is, which we encourage you to explore and use.
•http://urbanmushrooms.com/index.php?id=69 is funny and geared towards beginners
• http://mushroom-collecting.com/index.html is fun, geared towards the northeast and has an awesome cooking section.
• Kathie Hodge’s Cornell Mushroom Blog https://blog.mycology.cornell.edu/ funny, idiosyncratic and scientific — all at the same time.
• We all use Michael Kuo’s http://www.mushroomexpert.com/
• Tom Volk’s Fungi is more idiosyncratic and more selective, but equally authoritative: http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/
• http://www.mssf.org/cookbook/index.html Wild About Mushrooms is an entire cookbook on the website of the Mycological Society of San Francisco. These recipes are basic and a little old fashioned (still useful but note that since it’s west coast it ignores some of our species like black trumpets); for a trendier approach and a lot of good info on many many species, try: foragerchef.com
• It’s always good to see what our sister clubs are doing and the Washington, DC club is extraordinarily generous and making all of their recorded programs available on their website. Explore; you’ll find riches! https://www.youtube.com/c/MAWDC
Especially for more experienced members
• Harvard regularly holds Symposia on Plant Biology. In 2021 that Symposium was dedicated to plant-fungal relations, and talks were recorded and are posted at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpf6kH32m9v9NDg78Jqyf3w
